Any experience with DC Philanthropy/Fundraising?

“Hello, my friends and I are trying to find a bar that will help us raise money for a particular cause. We are looking for a bar that would be willing to donate proceeds. Does anybody have experience with doing this in DC? If so, which bars are normally open to helping?”

    Mellow Mushroom will allow you to use their 2nd floor dining room/ bar and donate a portion of the sales from those dining on that level to your group

    Tons of bars around the city do this. Most will want you to come on an otherwise not very busy day.

    solly’s charity trivia. every Wednesday night we host a charity during trivia. the charities bring prizes for 1st & 2nd place (can be charity swag or prizes that they have solicited as donations from local businesses), and the bar donates 10% of sales. charities are also encouraged to sell raffle tickets for additional prizes and can make $$ doing that as well. email sollysbooking @ gmail for more info.

    Vinoteca does fundraisers every week. they just book up in advance. You charge a cover (/donation) and they offer happy hour all night long to anyone that donates.

    The passenger also used to donate a percentage of monday night proceeds to a charity. Not sure if a different Brown restaurant is doing it while the Passenger is closed, but it’s worth checking.

    But the best place to start is with a bar or restaurant you have a relationship with/go to often. It’s a tax write off for them.

    I think Vinoteca also does something along the lines of what you’re looking for….

    Talk to the guys at Southern Hospitality. They’ve done the guest bartending thing for charity in the past.
